Garden Meadow #tgifc455 Card Sketch

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to gather at a friend’s home along with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. We brought along whatever projects we wanted to work on. This was a fun opportunity to chat and catch up. I took along a bunch of stamped images from the Garden Meadow stamp set and lots of Stampin’ Blends. Colouring is an activity that I enjoy. Sometimes I’ll mess with my colouring for ages because I find it very relaxing.

So after that night my wheelbarrow image was ready for this sketch at TGIF Challenges #tgifc455. This formed the front panel of the sketch.

I offset 2 rectangles for the back panel of the sketch. One has been embossed with the Fall 3D Embossing Folder and the Everyday Details die cut was blended with Lemon Lolly and Calypso Coral ink to coordinate with the flowers.

A pleased ribbon attached with Tear and Tape was added to embellish the sentiment. I tried the Calypso Coral sentiment without the black and felt it got lost so I ended up adding the strip of Basic Black Cardstock behind it and I liked the look of this better.

I hope you have enjoyed the inspiration using this beautiful bundle. If you would like to add this bundle to your shopping list, you will qualify for a Sale-A-Bration reward until 29th February.

I’ll be hosting a free Online Class on my FB page at 11am AEDT. Please join me as I create a few projects using new catalogue products.

New at SU Blog Hop – Hello, Irresistible Suite

Hi friends, Welcome to our New at SU Blog hop for August where we are featuring some of our suites in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and Online Exclusives range. I’ve chosen the Hello, Irresistible suite which is part of our Online Exclusives range.

New at SU Header 2023-2024

The Hello, Irresistible suite includes a stamp set and coordinating dies, Designer Series Paper and embellishments. The dies cut out several of the images in the Designer Series Paper, including flowers and leaves.

161154, Hello Irresistible Suite, Stampin' Up!
Colour Palette New at SU Blog Hop, August 2023

My card centred around that one flower which I heat embossed in Clear, stamping with Sweet Sorbet ink on Basic White Cardstock. I created 3 flowers which were watercoloured in Sweet Sorbet and Calypso Coral with a Water Painter. Then I cut them apart and layered each one to form a 3D flower.

I followed the sketch at TGIF Challenges and used some of the beautiful DSP for the top section of my card. I die cut the border also from DSP and blended Sweet Sorbet ink along the bottom edge.

Several leaves were die cut from the DSP and from Basic White Cardstock to fill out the flower.

For the banner, I die cut Soft Sea Foam Cardstock with the detailed die from the Irresistible Blooms dies. Then I adhered this to a piece of Kraft Notecard which I finished off by die cutting with the banner from the Nested Essentials Dies.

Thank you for stopping by to see my project. I hope you found it ‘irresistible’ and if you haven’t got this suite will consider adding it to your next order.

Next on our hop is my friend Angie McKenzie and I can’t wait to see her beautiful project with the Inked Botanicals suite. Follow our hop through for lots of suite inspiration and please leave a comment as we love hearing from you.

Happy Father’s Day – Trucking Along Bundle

When I saw that the Global Design Project #gdp403 theme this week was ‘Stripes’ I really wanted to play along with it. You can draw stripes, paint watercolour stripes, use patterned paper, make use of paper scraps and create a striped pattern, criss cross those stripes for checks… you get it – the possibilities are many.

My first thought was to use the striped paper which is available our Classic and In-Color 6″x6″ paper packs. I pulled out several colours, used none and just ended up with a big pile of stuff on my desk. I picked the lovely checked sheet from the Inked Botanicals DSP which is made up of stripes and layered it onto and embossed striped Basic White panel.

With Father’s Day in just 6 weeks I though I would combine all 3 of these challenges and chose the Trucking Along bundle to meet the TGIF Challenges #tgifc430 brief of travel. I then followed along with the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #FMS595 which made designing the card much easier.

The truck body was coloured in Lost Lagoon, Pool Party and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends. I added a tree ring in keeping with the outdoor theme I was trying to create for this Father’s Day card. I have several of these tree rings die cut and ready to be put on projects. These are kept in the folder which the dies come in and then when I need one, all I need to do is just add some colour. So for this tree ring I blended Wild Wheat, Pecan Pie and Copper Clay ink with a Blending Brush.

I added some leaves die cut again from Basic White Cardstock. These were blended with Mossy Meaadow and Copper Clay ink to give a variegated look.

I heat embossed the sentiment in Night of Navy/Clear Embossing Powder on the Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper. Using your Clear Embossing Powder you can match any project with all the colours in our range.

HOW TO HEAT EMBOSS IN COLOUR
  • Ink up the stamp in Versamark
  • Immediately ink it up in desired ink colour
  • Stamp onto Cardstock/Designer Series Paper
  • Pour Clear Embossing Powder over the image
  • Set with Heat Tool
  • You have a coloured embossed image

I hope you have enjoyed this project using the cute truck which has been very popular. The Trucking Along bundle is available now in our Online Exclusives range while supplies last.
